Bill Collage

As we all know, George Washington tried desperately to become a professional wrestler and world-class ballet dancer, so it makes sense that the General-turned-President would be the focus of a future Darren Aronofsky project. The director has attached himself to The General – a biopic with a script from Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (Tower Heist, Accepted). According to Variety, the director is shopping the project to Paramount (as contractually obligated) but if they pass, he’ll be taking it around town. Then, after they see the town, they’ll start taking meetings with studio executives. Why they’re stealing the name from a brilliant Buster Keaton Civil War adventure is unclear. However, it sounds like a solid enough idea. Cooper and Collage must be showing off a different side for Aronofsky to get on board like this, but it’s high time that we get a dirty-handed version of Washington. After all, if Abraham Lincoln can hunt vampires and FDR can be an American Badass, why not make Washington an unironic hero with blood on his hands?
